12:25 EDTBBBY, GM, IMPV, RAD, EBAY, RT, ALLYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite U.S. jobless claims dropping to their lowest level since 2007. Stocks began the session slightly lower following disappointing trade data from China, but the market seemed to briefly try and make a move into positive territory shortly after the opening bell. The attempt was short circuited when the tech-heavy Nasdaq began to weaken and the averages have continued to drift lower throughout the morning, leaving the Nasdaq down more than 2% near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial claims for unemployment benefits fell to 300K last week, hitting their lowest weekly level since May 2007. However, many discounted the figure, which can be volatile around March and April due to the timing of Passover and Easter, as well as other seasonal factors. Export prices rose 0.8% in March, while import prices grew 0.6%, both of which were greater than expected advances. In China, exports fell 6.6% from a year earlier in March, while imports plunged 11.3%. Economists had predicted year-over-year gains for both. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of eBay (EBAY) fell over 2.5% after the online marketplace operator struck a deal with noted investor Carl Icahn to end his proxy contest before the company’s upcoming annual meeting. The company agreed to Icahn’s suggestion to appoint David Dorman, a founding partner of Centerview Capital Technology, as an independent director and Icahn withdrew both his proposal to separate the company’s PayPal business and his two nominees to the company’s board... Shares of Ally Financial (ALLY), which was formerly the auto finance and financial services arm of General Motors (GM), were lower in their first day of trading following the company's return to the public markets. The Treasury Department, which had been Ally’s majority shareholder after rescuing it during the 2008 financial crisis, raised $2.38 billion by selling 95M shares at $25.00. General Motors made news again as well by confirming that two of its engineers have been placed on paid leave as part of the company's ongoing ignition switch recall probe. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 10% and casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which gained 13%. Among the noteworthy losers was home furnishings retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which dropped over 6% after the company's first quarter profit outlook significantly trailed analysts' consensus estimate and the stock was downgraded to Neutral at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Also lower were shares of data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook and the stock was downgraded at both Deutsche Bank and Oppenheimer. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 124.91, or 0.76%, to 16,312.27, the Nasdaq was down 92.72, or 2.22%, to 4,091.18, and the S&P 500 was down 21.90, or 1.17%, to 1,850.28.

06:41 EDTGMGM ordered new switches months before recall, WSJ reports
Half a million replacement ignition switches were ordered by General Motors (GM) almost two months before it alerted federal safety regulators of the issues that led to a recall of millions of vehicles, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing email exchanges between the automaker and Delphi Automotive (DLPH). The email exchanges, which took place in mid-December 2013 between a GM contract worker and Delphi, indicate GM placed an "urgent" order for 500,000 replacement switches on December 18, a day after a meeting of senior executives.
